A balding, white haired man about 78 years old, walked into Cartier in NYC this past Friday evening with a beautiful much younger woman about 49 years old at his side.
He told the salesman that he was looking for a very special ring for his girlfriend. The salesman looked through his stock and brought out a $7,000 ring.
The man said, ‘No, I’d like to see something much more special.’
At that statement, the salesman went into the vault and brought another ring over.
‘Here’s a stunning ring at only $64,000’ the salesman said.
The lady’s eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement.
The old man seeing this said, ‘We’ll take it.’
The salesman asked how payment would be made and the man stated, ‘by check. I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I’ll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds and I’ll pick up the ring Monday afternoon.’
On Monday morning, the salesman angrily phoned the old man and said ‘There was only $25 in your account.’
‘I know, said the man,
‘But let me tell you about MY GREAT WEEKEND!’ .
